I absolutely love your Flame Prince! It's amazing! Love your details on your costume and your makeup(from what I see)

On your yukina (from yuyu hakusho) is great! I love your color of your fabrics, very close to the anime and great construction on your kimono too! But to improve on it I think you redo her hair because her hair isn't as long as your wig (but it still looks great!) and to be more accurate, you could change the hair bow because Yukina has those weird red crystal things as her hair bow.

I don't know the prince one at all but even then it still looks very very good. I like the colors.

The other one all I can say is that wig looks almost "party style" wig to me..WAY too shiny Other then that (even though I still don't know this character either) the rest looks pretty good

I have to agree with the wig choice on Yukina. It does look like a party wig, and that's sad-- because honestly, it's making a really good costume look really cheap. :/ Sorry to be blunt! I mean no harm or disrespect! But that shiny quality of it really takes away from the nice construction of the costume!

I know wigs can be expensive, but honestly, it's worth it to bust out/save up the money to get a nice one. They last longer and look so much better in the long-run.
Currently planning for Ikki-con '11. Will prolly only go one day.

You can take the shine out of a wig by using a spray bottle of water and putting a couple of teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in it (one part vinegar to three parts water) and shaking it up and spritzing it on.

That being said, I freaking love your Flame Prince. It's really hard to do mohawk characters without the "bald" spots looking terrible but yours looks fantastic!

Thanks everyone for the feed back! To be honest, the Yukina wig was a last minute purchase so I didn't have time to get a better one. If ever I cosplay her again it will be on the fix list.
